ADDITIONAL GRADUATE PROGRAMS
Evidence-based decision-making that is informed by consideration of data is a key feature of the modern criminal justice system. This program will prepare students to become data analysts who are able to consider the full range of ethical and social implications of these decisions.
This program offers a unique perspective with its focus on ethical considerations of managing and analyzing large data sets to make evidence-driven decisions in the field of criminal justice. This program is timely because debates about how, when and whether to use predictive models and algorithms for criminal justice decisions have not been resolved. Possessing an understanding of the ethical and social implications of these debates will better prepare Marquette University-trained data analysts to engage in these debates and questions while working in the field.
